Under the Dome – Stephen King

This book has it’s own TRAILER for crying out loud!  An official trailer nonetheless.  I guess King goes big or goes home eh?

Disclaimer: this is the first Stephen King novel I have ever read.  I am by no means a horror fan.  I scare easy and remember the scary stuff for too long.  But I also knew the King was not solely a horror writer, and was willing to give him a go.  I’d been hearing buzz about this story, and it’s technically Sci Fi, and I am more than technically a Sci Fi fan, so off to the races I went.

Here’s the short dealio : A small town America community is suddenly, and without any seeming reason, cut off from the rest of the world, caught underneath a massive dome.  Military actions ensue, but it’s to no avail.  No one gets in, no one gets out.  Now the townspeople can rely on no one else, but it’s not just friends stuck in there…bad people and enemies are milling about all over the place, trying to keep resources for themselves.  Will they get out?  Will the find out why they are there, and who did it?

I hope it’s Kujo who’s trapped them all in there.

This book is giant sized, over 1000 pages…so maybe in a few weeks I will have all these answers for you!
